"In God We Teach" evenhandedly explores the issues of separation of church & state through the story of a high school student in Kearny, NJ who secretly recorded his teacher and accused him of proselytizing for Jesus in the classroom. The film examines the blurred lines between personal belief and civil law through the eyes of an average, blue-collar American town within sight of downtown New York. After approaching the local school board for redress and receiving none, high school student Matthew LaClair took his secretly recorded tape to the media, accusing his teacher, David Paszkiewicz, of illegally proselytizing for Jesus in the classroom. When the recordings were made public, the story exploded, and engulfing not just Kearny, but citizens across America."
The movie will be followed by a discussion lead by Eugene Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education.
The event, sponsored by Bay Area Skeptics, is free and open to the
